Working in the MAPAL IT world

We're proud to set the course for the future together with you. In doing so, we rely on a human approach, foresight and well thought-out organisation. All this forms the basis for a foresightful and reliable perspective as well as the quality of our products and services. As an employer and technology partner, this is something we've always been proud of. Now, we want to grow even more – with you as part of our team.

Not only are you an important driver of digitisation, you start from the bottom up with every line of code. This makes you a perfect fit for our team because we have put digitisation as the main focus of our competencies and services. We work internationally, in agile teams and using the latest tools and frameworks. This means there are challenging projects and development opportunities for you working with us.

Living & working: our benefits

A good work-life balance, an attractive work environment or future-oriented training opportunities - we share your view of modern work.
As a grown family company that has been operating internationally for a long time, we feel particularly responsible for each team member. It is important to us to create a working atmosphere in which you can work happily and with motivation. We offer you many benefits in the workplace and beyond.

Further training for professional and personal development

We put a lot of emphasis on continued and further training. Thanks to our highly qualified employees and managers, we are able to offer our customers innovative and highly productive tool solutions, allowing us to get ahead of the competition. Which is also where we intend to stay. The only way for us to achieve this aim is for our employees to always be in possession of the most up-to-date specialist knowledge.

As a response to the importance of this issue, the MAPAL Academy was established. It develops professional, social and intercultural programmes and seminars that are implemented locally at the subsidiaries of the MAPAL Group. This ensures that course contents are always up-to-date and of high quality.

Extensive continued training programmes, such as in the areas of languages or products & technology, help employees and managers keep their knowledge and skills up-to-date.

A constantly changing work environment on top of new megatrends in industry and the private sphere mean that people have to be willing to keep learning new things over the whole course of their lives. Further training for personal development is therefore also an important building block in MAPAL's approach to further training.

There are a wide range of opportunities for development at MAPAL, where we offer exciting and varied challenges for our employees. Whether it’s in the technical or commercial field, if you are committed and willing to learn, you can make progress along various paths.

Mobile Working & Flexible Working Hours
It is important to you to be able to organize your times flexibly and to work mobile if necessary. We understand that.
That is why we offer mobile working and flexible working time models - based on personal responsibility and mutual trust. We are convinced that our employees are particularly motivated and successful when they can rely on optimal framework conditions.
Health promotion

We take care of our employees’ health, because being healthy allows a person to get more out of life and means they are more motivated at work. What we offer in terms of health promotion differs from site to site. It covers occupational safety, nutrition, exercise and ergonomics.

Employees of the occupational health service provide our employees with advice and support in the prevention and treatment of diseases, as well as offering a range of check-ups.

We support our employees’ sporting endeavours, for example by covering a part of the entry fees for various swimming contests, runs and cycle races, or by providing team clothing.

Working globally

With our production, sales and service subsidiaries, we have a presence in 25 countries. Close cooperation across sites and between these sites and headquarters is absolutely essential for presenting a consistent image to the customer. This creates interesting tasks with an international focus for our employees, providing them with both professional and personal enrichment.

International collaboration is also essential at our sites in Germany. Every division of the company has links to our subsidiaries across the globe, thanks to regular contact through our communication channels, as well as business trips.

Modern tools & working methods
The latest tools and powerful hardware are available to you in our offices and of course anywhere in the world.
For example, you work cloud-based in the Office 365 ° environment, with SharePoint or teams. We rely on agile development methods and have switched to Scrum. In the project presentations you can find out more details about the individual frameworks and processes. Look in here.
Company pension plan
We support our employees in building up an additional pension plan in order to be able to close any pension gap that may arise in retirement.
